    6. Data and Talent Intelligence

    In this show Bas is joined by Kelly Robinson from the USA and Sofia Broberger from Sweden in a discussion about using data and especially external data for recruitment decisions. We discuss the differences in perceptions for different countries on length of processes and interviews, based on external benchmark data and how this might correlate with labor laws. Kelly notices we are still having the same lack of internal data as we did 10 years ago and Sofia cautions for relying too much on external data when they have a stake in the game.

    Useful cases are shared on how to use data to improve decisions and when it's good to use external data and when it's better to se external data and how to combine both sources.
